Musk will show on December 18 a transport tunnel near Los Angeles


The American company The Boring Company postponed until December 18 opening and demonstration of an underground transport tunnel near Los Angeles (State of California). About it the American businessman Elon Musk who possesses this firm wrote to Twitter.

In October Musk reported that the tunnel conceived by it as an alternative to traditional types of public transport will open on December 10. Now, as he explained, these plans are corrected. "Start - on December 18", - the businessman noted, having added that he "will be more, than opening of a tunnel".

according to the businessman, the company, in particular, will present autonomous vehicles and also the elevators connecting a tunnel with a surface. Musk did not present details of rather these novelties and the principles of their work. He also did not specify whether there will be specified systems are simply shown to public or they will be brought into operation.

the Tunnel 3.2 km long is driven under the southern suburb of Los Angeles from the ground used under the parking belonging to the SpaceX company to 120th Street where there is a headquarters of The Boring Company. To move on it, it agrees to one of projects, there will be platforms on electrodraft lowered in a tunnel on lift mines. The project purpose - working off of the technologies necessary for creation of the transport systems in big cities.

Opening of a test tunnel is a step forward to implementation of plans of Musk for creation of the city underground transport system. In August Musk announced plans of laying of a tunnel about 5 km long between already operating metro station and Dodger stadium on which the platforms calculated on 16 passengers will be able to move with a speed about 200 km/h. However prior to construction these plans will have to undergo careful testing in terms of safety and impact on the environment.
